Last night on Raw, Vince McMahon made his return to WWE television. Yes, after just a few months away and a short stint for Triple H as on-screen Chief Operating Officer, Mr. McMahon is back ... with dyed hair, even.

He returned during the very first match of the night, John Cena vs. Sheamus with Triple H as special guest referee (to read why this was the case, hit up the Raw live blog here), and interrupted to make a major announcement.

After scolding "The Game" for his inability to keep Raw in order during his time at the helm, Vince informed his successor the Board of Directors were making another tough decision.

Triple H was fired.

Naturally, that meant Vince had to appoint someone to run things in the interim and he inserted none other than his former lap dog, John Laurinaitis, as the General Manager.

Later in the show, "Trips" was placed in a match at Vengeance, which would seem to mark his return to an active wrestling role. It seemed as though it would only be a matter of time. How it got there, though, is absolutely sickening.

How are you Cagesiders feeling about McMahon being back and Triple H being out of his role as COO? Video after the jump.
